Kangra fort

Himachal Yatra – कांगड़ा


Kangra fort was built by Katoch rajputs of Kangra and was almost invincible, due to its mere geography. The fort is situated on a wall like mountain, surrounded by a deep and fast flowing Baan Ganga river from three sides. Fourth side had dense forest. Many Muslim invaders tried to win it but were always defeated.

It was due to treason of one minister of the king that the fort was finally won by Jahangir, the mogul king. The traitor minister asked moguls to make him the king and revealed the secret entry point to the invading army. However, the minister was beheaded by the invading army after conquering the fort. A good lesson for traitors !!
